Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
Fisher Paykel dryer only about 3 years old will not longer heat. All the buttons function or light up and the dryer will run for a correct time frame, but NO HEAT, none at all! Think it is the heating element, but don't have a clue where to begin looking for it or how easy it is to replace.
I have a F&P dryer DEGX1 about three years old , followed kristi's advice and it worked. There are two screws holding the information panel on, inside there is a schematic with instructions on how to put the dryer in diagnostic mode and how to take the front panel off. i reset the breaker located at the bottom of the front panel on the heating element box and put it back together and it worked.
My vent cover outside was frozen shut and this caused the breaker to blow saving the heater elements, am changing the vent cover to a different design to prevent this happening again

Coming back to this well oafter the fact, but I did get this problem fixed. As it turned out, the rotating lint screen on the left side of the drum had a hole in it, which allowed lint to get in and pack in around the heat sensor that is being the lint trap box. (the holes came from a pack of gum my teenage son left in his pocket...) I ended up replacing the lint screen with a new one, cleaned out the area around the sensor, and it has been working like a champ ever since. Much cheaper than replacing elements and breakers, that is for sure.

I had the same problem, it turn out to be the circuit breaker. Instead of putting out 220a it was only putting out 110, which was just enough to run everything but not dry. I put in new 220a breaker and it started to run like new.

Following Kristi2063's lead, I took the front panel off and hit the reset button, and miracle of miracles, the dryer is heating again. This is the third or fourth time it has happened with this machine, and the technician who comes out always says that the filter was blocked . . . even though I empty the filter faithfully.

F&P products are really service friendly. Id say take the back panel off and the element should be there behind a shield.

Dryer heating elements come in various shapes and sizes. They are all strung with a coiled wire made of a nickel and a chrome alloy. This wire receives, but resists, a controlled electric current and as a result, the wire heats up. The heat produced is used to heat and dry the clothes in your dryer.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
